Integrations

If you have previously worked with other tools and want to switch or need an integration to OpenProject, there is a way to do so for some applications.

GitHub

OpenProject offers a basic GitHub integration. You will find more information about the GitHub integration in our GitHub integration guideline.

Gitlab

The GitLab integration to OpenProject is currently being developed and you can find all information here. We are prioritizing this topic at the moment and will update this guide with the latest developments.

Jira

Currently, there is no direct integration between OpenProject and Jira. Since OpenProject is an excellent open source alternative to Jira, we have prepared a way to import tickets from Jira to OpenProject. First, you can export your tasks from Jira into an Excel file and then import these tasks via an Excel plugin into OpenProject.

If you would like to learn more about the features of OpenProject vs Jira please read here.

Microsoft Project

There is an integration between MS Project and OpenProject. However, the synch plugin is not actively maintained at this time. If you wish to find out more, please contact us. To synchronize tasks from MS Project to OpenProject, you can export your MS Project file to Excel and then synchronize it with OpenProject.

Trello

Currently, there is no direct integration between OpenProject and Trello. To synchronize tasks from Trello to OpenProject, export your tasks from Trello into an Excel file and then import these tasks via an Excel plugin into OpenProject.

Toggl

We do offer an integration between OpenProject and the time tracking app Toggl. Find out more here.

Slack

There is a rudimentary OpenProject Slack integration. It messages a configured Slack channel, every time a Work Package or Wiki site is modified. This integration is not officially supported by OpenProject. To activate it in the Cloud Edition please get in touch. For the Enterprise Edition and the Cloud Edition you can find the plugin and its documentation on GitHub: OpenProject Slack plugin

Timesheet

Currently, there is no direct integration between OpenProject and Timesheet. If you are looking for a time tracking tool with a simple push of a button, consider the integration with Toggl.
